Walpole Island extends entry checkpoint for another month, confirms one new COVID-19 case – Wallaceburg Courier Press

July 29, 2020

The bridge checkpoint that restricts most non-resident travel into Walpole Island First Nation will remain in place for at least another month. Walpole Island First Nation council made the decision on July 28.

“Today, Bkejwanong chief and council voted to keep the checkpoint in place for another month,” said Coun. Alan Jacobs, during a Facebook video update. “Council will review the latest numbers and the feedback from our community and the health team at the end of August.”

The 24-hour checkpoint has been enforced since April 1 as a way of trying to limit the spread of COVID-19 into the community. The one-month extension comes a day after a community member tested positive for COVID-19 on July 27, after Walpole Island had no active cases since June 5.

Non-residents can only enter Walpole Island to access essential services and they are required to go directly to that service and leave immediately after, with no additional stops or visits. Non-residents accessing essential services can only do so from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m., with only Walpole Island residents and emergency services allowed to cross the checkpoint outside of those hours.
